Paul Kaye is the perfect type for this DJ-character in the Ibiza music & party scene. I'll keep it briefly. The film got lot's of aspects as my summary explains. A genius in his own right.
We saw the movie at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam (the Netherlands). It was a surprise movie at the last evening of this Festival. It really surprised us. Nighty minutes after the movie ended we were still laughing and talking about this unique movie. Something to remember: the alternative 'scarface' scene. It's the brain of Michael Dowse that we have to thank for such a film
Go see the movie and have fun! Even if you don't like house music.
